Products CSL loves, and you should try too!
1. IT WILL SET YOU FREE
Satya is Sanskrit for truth. When a doctor recommended medication to treat her daughter’s eczema, Canadian founder Patrice Mousseau turned to five natural ingredients, including herbs, and oils, instead. It led her to create a thick soothing balm that keeps skin moisturized and protected (a great choice even for those without the condition). That’s the truth! Satya Organic Eczema Relief, 50 ml, $24; satya.ca
2. MADE IN CANADA
Part of a Canadian-made natural skin care line, this lightly scented salve includes beneficial moisturizers like shea butter, calendula infused sunflower oil and meadowfoam seed oil. Wildcraft All Purpose Salve, $12; wildcraftcare.ca
Cardamom and lavender give this lotion the sort of upscale perfume notes that make us swoon. The silky lotion is especially nice after a long bath. Pangea Organics Body Lotion, $26; pangeaorganics.com
4. ROLLIN’ ROLLIN’
Lip oils are the new lip balm. This one uses Italian virgin olive oil to soften and hydrate lips. The freshen-your-breath peppermint essential oil gives a subtle tingle. It glides on easily and is compact enough to slip into your purse. That’s one way to keep rollin’ on. Olivella Lip Roll-on with Mint, $5.95; olivellaline.com
5. LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE
A makeup remover that gets its effectiveness from botanicals? Yes! With ingredients like aloe vera, chamomile and rose, this oil-based cleanser dissolves makeup oils. It has a non-greasy, light feel on your face. Forget witchcraft and rely on wildcraft instead. Wildcraft Chamomile Honey Makeup Remover, $18; wildcraftcare.ca
6. LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED
A double-duty cream means you can simplify your makeup routine, not use any tools and still look beautiful. Just swipe it on lips and cheeks and blend with fingers. Best of all, the cream comes in a biodegradable container. Elated, yet? Elate Clean Cosmetics Universal Crème Love, $20; elatecosmetics.ca
